Elinchrom’s new BRX range of compact flash units is perfect for photographers both in the studio and on location. The BRX 500 is a great addition to any set of lights and is the perfect replacement for the Classic EL500. The concept is simple. Control, Power, Speed and Versatility. With many programmable features and the EL-Skyport remote system, the BRX enables photographers the greatest freedom to express their individuality.

Full RX Skyport is built in, meaning you can control and fire the lights with a small on-camera transmitter. What's more, with the optional WiFi module you can control this and any RX compatible flash unit from an iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad using the free Skyport iOS app. Don’t have a compatible iOS device? Then use the USB module and free Elinchrom ERS software on your PC or Mac to not only control your flashes but to save sample images and studio layout diagrams.
